All4Labels invests in Gallus Labelmaster

All4Labels has installed a Gallus Labelmaster Advanced flexo press at its production site in Lübbecke to produce tube laminates, having previously installed one at its Schweiz facility in St Gallen Switzerland to print pressure-sensitive labels.

All4labels is one of the world’s largest label and packaging converters with over 3000 staff and 5000 customers worldwide. The company has 29 production facilities, mostly located in Europe, but with three each in the Americas and Asia as well as one in South Africa. It can trace its history back to 1881 with the founding of Baumgarten, though All4Labels was actually set up in 2016 when Baumgerten merged with Rako Etiketten (founded 1969) asd X-Label (founded in 1991). 

The Labelmaster Advanced, which was installed in January this year, is equipped with ten flexo printing units, which can be used either for colour printing, cold-foil or varnishing depending on the customer-specific requirements. It’s a 440mm wide machine and the line also includes a cold-foil unit. It’s designed as a modular press and can run at 200mpm.

Matthias Michel, plant Manager at All4Labels Lübbecke, says that the short set up time and high printing speed has increased the company’s overall productivity, adding: “A further benefit of the Labelmaster we see in the ecological side: we save an impressive amount of production waste due to the short web path of only 1.4 metre between printing cylinders. This means that we now have less waste, subsequently lowered our costs for substrates as well as for waste disposal.”

It’s worth noting that All4Labels has previously installed two Mark Andy P7 presses at its Witzhave (Germany) and Hangzhou (China) plants, as well as three Nilpeter Panorama hybrid presses. You can find more information at All4Labels at its website here.
